christmas greetings

Merry Christmas my Aviators,

seasonal greetings from your first officer Pilot Patrick. I wish you a joyful holiday season and a happy new year! I hope you can enjoy the time with your beloved ones. Especially as flight crew it happens to be that you are not at home. Last year I spend Christmas eve with my crew in Zürich. This season I am lucky to be with my family in Hessen.

2016 was a fantastic year! Now I am excited for 2017, because of big changes in my pilot career. I will already give you a brief look out.

Flying home for Christmas – I grew up close to Frankfurt

The bad news time flies, the good news I am the pilot!

Seriously this year past by so fast. Maybe this feeling arises, because so many things took place. During my job and my private journeys I got to visit many new places, I have never been too. One of my favorite ones was South Africa. In August I moved my home base to Barcelona for 3 months. I had the chance to get to know this vibrant city and I could definitely imagine living there. Cool side effect was that I improved my Spanish skills a little bit and I learnt to wave surf.

Social Media

At this stage I also want to thank you for your amazing support of my social media. I appreciate every single like and comment I receive from you. I try as much as I can to answer all your questions, but time is unfortunately limited. This is one reason why I decided to launch my own blog to be able to share my adventures and my healthy lifestyle with you. As you know you are all my Aviators and for those who really want to become a pilot I am sharing my experiences of pilot career to support and answer your questions. “How to become a pilot” is one of my most read blog post so far.

I am brining your presents this year 😉

 What can you expect in 2017?

More aviation, more travel, more lifestyle and more of me!

You got to know me as a First officer who is operating private Jets. As you know I have been flying a fancy business Jet for six years now. It was an amazing time and for me the best way to start my pilot career. I have flown to hundreds of different destination getting to know all parts of Europe and many famous people. I welcomed the beautiful and rich on board and flew them to business meetings or to vacation hotspots. My favorite trips were with music bands when we were the personal jet for their tour.

I am leaving the private aviation with a crying and with laughing eye, because I will soon fly a big Airbus wide body aircraft. The type rating will start in January at Lufthansa flight training. I hope you will join me on this interesting and exciting career section.

    Hello Ninda,
    happy new year to you as well! Thanks for your kind comment and I am really sorry for my late reply. Is it correct that you want to become a pilot at Lufthansa? The former flight school of Lufthansa does not exist any longer From now on it is possible to do the flight training with a subsidiary of Lufthansa. This is where I went to school and they do not require german. It was a on a self paid basis. I hope I could help. Many greetings Patrick
